Built for 65 nm and smaller technology nodes, PrimeYield integrates design with manufacturing by predicting design-induced mechanisms that threaten manufacturing tolerances and by providing automated correction guidance to design implementation tools. Program includes critical area analysis; lithography compliance checking, which flags potential lithographical errors and process-variation effects early in design process; and model-based CMP, which locates and analyzes uneven metal fill.
Integration of Production-Proven Design and Manufacturing Technology Accelerates Time to Yield
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 24 / -- In a move that empowers integrated circuit (IC) designers by giving them more control over the manufacturability of their leading-edge designs, Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNPS), a world leader in semiconductor design software, today launched the PrimeYield tool suite. Built for 65 nanometer (nm) and smaller technology nodes, …
